    9.5 she's trapped by the reverse sweep! This was full and at the stumps, they'd been doing so well milking those down the ground but this time Taylor gets a little too cheeky and is struck quite low on the back pad. Simple decision for Umpire Dar 55/2
    5.4 excellent catch at mid-on, Cameron knows it as she throws the ball high into the air. This was full and on off stump, Edwards looks to hoist it over the bowler but the fielder rushes in and dives forward to hold on to a very important catch. The England captain has been sent back 23/1
    12.5 Perry's in the action again. Runs in from the midwicket boundary and pouches a stinger! Had to drag this from outside off stump, but it was hit quite well. Just didn't have the distance on it and Australia's fielding seems back to it's usual top-class levels 67/4
    10.5 this time there's an edge and Healy dives low to her left to complete the catch! More seam away and Greenway fishes outside her off stump with an open face and has to walk back 58/3
    15.5 back of the hand slower ball and the stumps are disturbed! Sneaked under the bat as she was looking to press forward and flick across the line through midwicket. Played a little too early and England lose another wicket at the worst possible time 85/5

    17.2 walks across to try and open up the leg side, but this one swings in late and strikes her very low on the pads. No doubt about this one. Plumb in front of all three 95/7
    16.3 swing across the line and the stumps take a clattering again! Fullish delivery, not really much threat if she was playing with a straight bat. But England need quick runs and that forces Beaumont to go for a slog over midwicket, but she can't connect 93/6

    19.3 slog sweep, but it goes right down the throat of the deep midwicket fielder. Those big boundaries are hurting England. This was length and outside off, good shot selection but she just can't instill enough power into the shot 101/8

    6.2 drive on the up and Edwards does brilliantly well at mid-on to pick up a running catch! Took it over her shoulder as she was running to her left. Villani was just a little too early into the stroke 44/2
    2.4 Shrubsole does it again! England needed an early strike and Jonassen has handed it to them by picking out mid-on. Had to drag this from way outside off as she looked to cream it over the leg side. Slower ball ensures there is no timing on it and she perishes to a smart catch around head high 17/1
    14.4 she is furious with herself. Slams the bat into the pitch after she presents the simplest of catches to mid-off. Just couldn't get under it enough 104/3

    15 another wicket, Sciver doing her best to keep this alive but it's all too little too late. Full delivery and Blackwell stays back and wants to play across the line. Easy decision 105/4

  • Chasing the men down

    Greg Baum, in the <i>Age</i>, believes Australia Women's efficient defence of their World T20 title was another advertisement of their catching up with the men's game

  • Edwards rues England's power deficit

    Charlotte Edwards admitted other teams have "much more of a power aspect to their games" after England ended the Women's World T20 without a single six

  • Lanning marshals 'perfect' game

    Australia's hat-trick of World T20 titles could not have been secured in more convincing style as they out-muscled England in a faultless performance

  • No sixes for England

    Plays of the day from the final of the Women's World Twenty20 in Mirpur

  • Coyte, Lanning sparkle as Australia coast to hat-trick

    The threat of some inclement weather later on persuaded Meg Lanning to put England in to bat after winning the toss in Mirpur
